Wow! Here's one that exceeds the Indonesian Mud Volcano in stupidity! So, here we have these unstable slopes, and somebody is digging a gravel pit at the toe. La, la, la! They have tension cracks and local failures. La, la, la. The state makes a feeble effort to stop them. They go to their lawyers. La la la, and then KAPOW!
T'were'nt us that caused this! Must have been a distant earthquake. Yeah, that's the ticket!
